Introducing The Extraordinary 2016 Cadillac CTS Sedan


Built to challenge the world’s finest luxury mid-size sports sedans, the brilliant new 2016 Cadillac CTS for sale in St. Petersburg at Dimmitt Cadillac stretches boundaries, defies expectations, and exhilarates the senses.


Award-Winning Design

Named a Car And Driver “10Best” for 2016 and now in its third generation, the CTS was recently updated and redesigned. Handsomely sculpted character lines, dramatic angles, and evocative creases in the hood and along the flanks give the CTS a lean, lithe, and athletic appearance. Kirk Bell of TheCarConnection.com states that the CTS “…is the best interpretation of Cadillac’s Art & Science design language that we’ve seen.”

Moreover, the sleek and contemporary design of the CTS has a purpose. The vehicle’s sheetmetal was rigorously tested in a wind tunnel to dial in aerodynamics that simultaneously improve handling and fuel efficiency. Hidden behind the CTS’s signature grille are active aero grille shutters that automatically close to enhance aerodynamic efficiency when additional engine cooling is not needed.

Artistry In Motion

Both a work of art and a masterpiece of kinetic design, the CTS wears a unique inlaid hood that features various sculptural elements, creating a sense of forward motion. Dazzling crystalline vertical LED lighting accents sparkle like diamonds. Available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps with Adaptive Forward Lighting turn in the direction of vehicle travel for enhanced visibility going around curves. The rear of the CTS features an integrated spoiler and iconic vertical LED taillights that pay homage to the Cadillacs of a bygone era.

You can also choose from a rich palette of 10 exterior colors to suit your unique taste and adorn your CTS with distinctive bright chrome sport alloy wheels. Or you may want to give your 2016 Cadillac CTS an extra dash of stylish panache by ordering it with the exclusive Black Chrome Package consisting of a black chrome-accented grille and dramatic After Midnight premium black 18-inch wheels.

Your Luxury. Your Way.

The interior of the new 2016 CTS for sale near Tampa resonates with an aura of transcendent luxury and sophistication. You have the opportunity to make the CTS’s quiet and spacious cabin uniquely your own. Select from several haute couture designer touches, including exotic woods, carbon fiber trim, and available leather seating hand cut and sewn from the finest leather. You can even customize the 12.3-inch LCD driver information display integrated into the sports instrument cluster to communicate vital information such as navigational prompts and entertainment options.

Other notable premium appointments and convenience features that set the CTS apart include subtle ambient interior lighting, concealed cup holders, and a smart key fob with Adaptive Remote Start that allows you to start the vehicle’s engine from up to 100 yards away as well as lock and unlock the doors and activate the available heated and ventilated seats. Available 20-way power adjustable front driver and passenger seats let you precisely customize your comfort while the available tri-zone climate control ensures that everyone feels comfortable, no matter how short or long the drive.

A Technology Showcase

The 2016 Cadillac CTS is a masterful achievement of technological innovation. The hub of this technological tour de force is Cadillac CUE®. Improved and upgraded for 2016, CUE is more intuitive and user-friendly than ever. A large color touchscreen display senses when your hand is near it, coming to life when you need it. The screen also provides tactile feedback when you touch, flick, or swipe it. Also new for 2016 is integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. You can now use many of your smartphone’s available functions, such as managing your playlists, sending and receiving calls hands-free via Bluetooth®, obtaining turn-by-turn navigation instructions, and accessing popular streaming audio, text-messaging, and social media apps.

Best of all, your 2016 CTS can now be equipped with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot powered by AT&T and OnStar®. The hotspot allows you to connect multiple devices to surf the web, watch videos, and stay connected with friends and family. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of available wireless smartphone charging and the sonic excitement of listening to your favorite music on the available 11-speaker BOSE® Surround-Sound Audio system.

World-Class Handling & Performance

The 2016 Cadillac CTS from Dimmitt Cadillac in St. Petersburg offers scintillating styling, indulgent luxury, and the latest technology. But what really sets the CTS apart is how it performs. Cadillac engineers ensured that the CTS could run neck-and-neck with the world’s best luxury sedans by calibrating its suspension and handling on Germany’s famed Nürburgring road course. The result is a four-door luxury sports sedan that is surprisingly agile and responsive. TheCarConnection.com’s Kirk Bell states that “The CTS hits the road with finesse and poise,” adding that it should justly join “…the list of the best luxury sports sedans on the market.”

The reason for these accolades is based on the CTS’s advanced suspension and powerful choice of engines. Cadillac’s groundbreaking Magnetic Ride Control™, the same technology found on the incomparable Corvette Stingray, continuously adjusts to changing road conditions up to 1,000 times a second. Available All-Wheel Drive with Active Torque Technology provides confident assurance rain or shine. And a near 50/50 weight balance and reduced weight contribute to The CTS’s impeccable road manners. Large BREMBO® brakes ensure sure-footed stopping power.

Even more impressive are the CTS’s remarkable power plants starting with the efficient 2.0-liter Turbo 4-cylinder that delivers 268 horsepower while achieving up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg highway thanks to automatic start/stop technology. You can also step up to the more potent, second-generation 3.6-liter V6 that offers up a pulse-quickening 335 horsepower and 285 lb.-ft. of torque.

Both engines deliver power to the pavement via a new smooth shifting 8-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. You can also enjoy working through the gears using the available magnesium sport paddle shifters. You can also enhance your driving experience by choosing from three driver-selectable modes, including Tour, Snow/Ice, and Sport. The result is an invigorating driving experience that is sure to put a smile on your face.

Cutting-Edge Safety Features

Driving your CTS down straightaways and through twists and turns is both a supremely satisfying and confidence-inspiring experience. But what also inspires confidence is the CTS’s arsenal of standard and available safety features. The CTS’s safety cage is constructed of high-strength steel designed with crumple zones to absorb impact. Ten standard airbags, including front passenger knee airbags and side-impact airbags for rear seat passengers, surround you.

Available active driver-assist and driver-awareness safety features use cutting-edge cameras and radar to create an umbrella of electronic safety around the vehicle. A notable safety innovation is the Safety Alert Seat that vibrates to either the left or to the right to alert you if you are drifting out of your lane. Additional safety features include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Front and Rear Automatic Braking. A multi-view camera offers a 360-degree perspective to help avoid obstacles and a Heads-Up Display (HUD) projects key vehicle information on the inside of the windshield to help you stay focused on the road. Consequently, the 2016 CTS receives top safety ratings from both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The best way to experience all of the world-class performance, handling, luxury, style, and technology that the 2016 Cadillac CTS has to offer is to get behind the wheel yourself. We invite you to visit Dimmitt Cadillac in Pinellas Park today and do just that.
